Bright hope: Fukushima temple draped in lights as prayer for disaster recovery


Lights at the Shiramizu Amida hall are seen being tested in this 30-second exposure shot taken in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, on Nov. 9. (Mainichi)



IWAKI, Fukushima -- Lights have been set up at the Shiramizu Amida hall, a designated national treasure and part of a temple complex here, as local businesses pray for recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake and ongoing nuclear disaster.

At a test lighting on Nov. 9, LEDs lit up over 20 trees in the temple garden, including a large ginkgo said to be over 400 years old, and a Buddhist statue in the hall.

The hall is part of the Ganjoji temple complex, and the lights can be seen every evening through Nov. 20.
